Celebrity Sighting

We are forgoing this week's SLANDER EDITION FRIDAY to bring you something that we haven't had around here in quite awhile: REAL GOSSIP from a reader:

Just thought I would pass on a sighting that I had Monday night-- DICK ENRICO of 2nd Wind Exercise Equipment was enjoying an x-large Blizzard at the DQ Grill and Chill on Excelsior in St. Louis Park. He was fully immersed in the Blizzard, which he devoured at rapid speed. His face really is THAT red, BTW. Though he was enjoying a wholly American pastime, he looked less than happy as he sat solo in his booth. We were most interested in getting updates on his metro-sexual bachelor son, Rick (from The Bachelorette). Anyways, a definite *star* sighting.

Thank you, gentle reader! You know what this means? Dick is out in the wild! Everybody, please keep your eyes peeled for sightings of him consuming more food around town and report back!

Humpday Hotdish Hoedown

If you're anything like us, you have a relative in the family who has a garden going crazy right now, leaving you with more veggies than you know what to do with. Here is our solution:

Stuffed Eggplant

3 eggplants
1 large zucchini
1 onion
1 tomato
fresh basil
salt, pepper, and garlic to taste
olive oil
mozzerella and parmesean cheese

Cut eggplants and zucchini in half and cover with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Roast in oven at 375 degrees for around 30 minutes (until soft). Remove from oven and put aside to cool. Chop up other veggies and sautee in olive oil for around 10 minutes. Scoop out eggplants, leaving skin in tact. Scoop out zucchini as well, but throw the skin away (we found that these don't work well for stuffing). Chop up eggplant and zucchini, then combine with sauteed veggies. Fill empty eggplant skins with vegetable mixture and sprinkle with breadcrumbs and cheese. Bake for around 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
